    How do you tighten the fan belt?


    Focuses use an automatic belt tensioner which has no adjustment (as its spring loaded) if your belt is not tight enough replacement of the tensioner could be necessary..if you're asking due to a squealing problem check the pulley on the tensioner and the idler pulley..they are a common part to need changing

    I have a 2003 Ford Focus ZX5 and have had a great deal of work done in the last 3 weeks. I have new spark plugs, wires, gasket cover, oil change and the motor mounts replaced. After picking up my car...


    It depends if the Serpentine Belt is worn or not, i.e. cracked, glazed, dryed out. If it is good and the belt is still squealing than it may be a bad Belt Tensioner, which is not keeping the belt properly tensioned. (Loose Belt) Replacing the Belt will not solve the problem of the car running hot. You will need to fix the Electric Fan that is not working, because if you keep on running the car hot all the time you may blow the Head gasket to your engine which will cost you about $800-1100 dollars to repair.

    changing a serpentine beltUsually, A serpentine belt system has a spring-loaded idler. Using the proper wrench, usually an 18mm, one can relieve the tension on the belt, making it relatively easy to change the belt. On most vehicles you will find a sticker either on the underside of the hood or somewhere in the engine compartment that shows how the belt goes on.

    Changing the serpentine belt


    just need a 12 -14 mm socket, place on tensioner, than you just pry up or down and the tensioner will move. It may be easier to use a long wrench rather than a socket.

    Serpentine belt replacement


    2.0L Engines
    See Figures 11, 12 and 13
    The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
    Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
    The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
